Paintings by Jean-Pierre Leclercq

Leclercq is a talented French painter who has exhibited and received prizes for his work in France and the US. An artist formerly dedicated to drawing, Leclerq now considers himself a most traditional painter. Working within New Realism Art, his pieces immerse us into rich environments and showcase the sublime feminine.

” I’m a traditionnal painter. All my work are made only with pencils, pastels, brushes or some paint. My current approach is an expression in the mind of realism but with the integration of romantic or symbolist elements. My purpose is at first to create some positive emotion, to begin with mine. Above all, I stage human beings with a preference for the femininity, often sublimated by the nudity.” Jean-Pierre Leclercq

Reincarnation and Plato

Many naturally assume that growing Western world belief in reincarnation is primarily based on a simultaneous increasing influence of Eastern religion and thought. This assumption is due, in part, that (many) Eastern religions have long known spiritual traditions that incorporate the concept of reincarnation. Paying close attention, the current Western World “rebirth” of a belief in reincarnation (pun intended) owes much or most of the credit to the ancient classical Greeks and their fascinating views on the afterlife and reincarnation. In particular, we owe many of our ideas to the musings and discourses of the ancient classical Greek philosopher Plato (428/427 BC – 348/347 BC).

Reincarnation and ancient Greeks
The idea of re-incarnation was not unknown to the ancient Greeks. The eminent philosopher Plato was a major exponent of this belief (as was Pythagoras and the Orphic mystery religion(s)). Plato attributed the idea back to his mentor Socrates, who he recounts saying upon his deathbed: “I am confident in the belief that there truly is such a thing as living again, and that the living spring from the dead, and that the souls of the dead are in existence, and that the good souls have a better portion than the evil”. – Plato, Phaedo
